I recently got a tripod, and I need a head for it. I would like to try a variety of video, so looking for something that allows moving the camera smoothly.
There are a variety of types of tripod heads available. eg ballhead, pan and tilt, geared heads, or fluid heads. What are the differences between these, and which is most useful for video?
I will also be using the tripod for some still photography, so would be good if the tripod head is also suitable for that.
What other features are worth looking for in a tripod head?
